Loud - maybe ball bearings gone

Makes a lot of noise and won't tumble. Think bearings may be shot.

    my problem is am concerned that the noise from the machine isnt the bearings. is there a silencer built into machines and if not how can you tell if its bearings or glides?

    do ppl get fobbed off with this quite often, only my client is disabled and on low income. Would glides be infact cheaper but the engineer will make more money if he says it is bearings

How old is the machine?
There are glides that the drum turns on that may be bad rather than a bearing!
How old is the machine? if it's 9 years old or more.Do not put good money into bad!
A new machine will save you a lot of money on energy. Enough to pay for it self in only a few years!

What could be causing the loud shrieking noise on spin only? It's also making a little bumping noise - not a lot, but it's there.

It is usually the bearings that cause the shrieking noise if you have a belt on it it could be needing straightened on the pulley and if you take the belt off and try and turn the drum and listen to see if it is the bearings slightly grinding they may have got water into them. The only other unit is the motor. The bumping noise can be caused if maybe a sock or something that can get between the drum and the casing also some washing machines have shockers and some have springs on top that can break through time and wear and this causes it to be unbalanced.

What causes our front loading washer to make exceeding loud noise when it enters a spin?

Sounds like a bearing seal is going. The seal has ruptured and grease of seeping out. The loud noise is the bearings rubbing against each other without adequate grease to reduce the friction. Failure will come soon if it is not fixed. The vibration is coming from the friction and possibly damaged ball bearings .

When it hits the spin cycle the drum makes a loud clunking noise, and found some white plastic piece that came out.

Sounds like the drum bearings have gone. This is a big job to do. If the machine is 5 years old and has done a lot of work, think about a new machine as may be cheaper in the long run.

When in spin cycle machine makes a very loud whining noise

Most common cause for your whining noise is because the seals have failed/worn and allowed water into the bearings..Rusty ball bearings are not smooth...Hence the noise.....Probably needs bearing/seal and probably shaft replacement....Big job..Get quotes....Good luck...Nomess

Our Neptune Maytag Washer is making a very loud noise during the spin clycle. I think It may be a bearing but its only a little over 4 years old. Have Maytag had a lot of problems with this kind of noise

Yes Maytag has had seal and bearing issues. Check your original warranty paperwork it still maybe covered?

Call the store where you bought it, they may cover it under warranty.

Did you buy an extended warranty?

Frgidaire Tumble action washer

because of the grinding noise your talking about it sounds like the motor bearings are bad which would require motor replacement. but, thats normally not what cause the " not completly turning problem" your having. general thats cause be the motor speed control not sending the proper power to the motor. remove the belt and turn the motor by itself to see if the noise is really come from the motor and not the back of the tub. if it is the motor, replace the motor. if it coming from the back of the tub the replace the motor speed control. the noise coming from the back of the tub would just be the ball bearings and they do make some noise on this model but you wont hear it when the washer is running
